Aunt desperate to know what happened to missing Calgary toddler and her mother
CALGARY — An aunt of a missing Calgary toddler says she's desperate to know what happened to little girl and her mother, who police believe may be victims of a homicide.
CALGARY — Police say they have found the bodies of a Calgary woman and her toddler daughter who disappeared last month.
Investigators say a suspect, who was earlier questioned in the case, has been taken into custody and charges are pending.
Aliyah Sanderson, who was 22 months old, and her mother, Jasmine Lovett, had not been seen since April 16 and were reported missing a week later after they failed to show up for a family dinner.
Officers say the bodies were found in a heavily wooded area near Grizzly Creek, located off Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country, a wilderness area on the eastern edge of the Rockies.
Police say the cause of death of both victims is not expected to be released.
